Apex northern sociocultural group, Arewa Consultative Forum (-ACF) said it has received with grief the audio voice alleged to be that of the Dapchi girl, Leah Sharibu still in the captivity of Boko Haram terrorists that abducted the Dapchi girls in February this year.
A statement issued by the forum’s national publicity secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim Biu, said, “in the alleged audio, Leah is appealing to President Buhari and all Nigerians to come to her rescue from the terrorists. If the audio is truly of Leah, it gives hope that the girl is still alive and may be released someday.
“Although majority of the kidnapped girls were rescued by the Military and other security agencies one month after their abduction, Leah has not been lucky. Hence the anxiety and concern which the audio has rekindled in the minds of not only the parents but also across the nation.
“The assurance given by the federal government that the security agencies are decoding the alleged audio cassette to verify its authenticity is a welcome development and heartening.
‘ACF, however, urges the federal government to not only fast track the process of verification of the audio, but also utilize its intelligence to trace and rescue Leah and other Chibok girls that have been in the terrorists’ den for the past four years.
“ACF also appeals to Nigerians to be prayerful and hopeful for the successful rescue of our kidnapped girls and many others in the captivity of Boko Haram terrorists. The situation demands consciously directed efforts from all”.
